  • 3 tbs sunflower oil 
  • salt 
  • pepper 


  1. On medium high, heat a pot and add 1 tbs of sunflower oil, and brown your meat of choice, and set aside.
  2. In the same pot, add sliced onion and fry in 1 tbs sunflower oil with a little salt until slightly translucent and set aside.
  3. Slice carrot into matchsticks.
